How much are you paying for hair and makeup for yourself and how much is it for others in the wedding party?
I’ve seen anywhere from $85 to $500 per service for the bride. I really am going back and forth on getting my makeup done the day-of as I can’t get a trial.

    Mine as the bride is $85 for hair and $85 for makeup, for everyone else its $75 and $75, if wanting airbrush it was an extra $10 per person. I've run into the issue of minimums so I asked my mom, future MIL and future SIL if they wanted theirs done too. Also there is a possible travel fee to consider if the person is coming to you. I've gotten quotes from places that was like $375 for hair and makeup for the bride - no thanks. I never wear makeup so I don't want to or need to be super glam for my wedding.

    I got similar quotes for makeup, in Aussie dollars. I am paying $145 for me, $135 for my bridesmaids, plus travel costs.

    I think this varies a lot with where are you live, and how skilled/experienced the people you hire are. My makeup artist is charging $350 per person and hair is $200 per person.

    It definitely depends on where you live and whether the hair and makeup people are traveling to you. My hair and makeup is going to be $250 and it's $175 each for the other people. We're going to the salon to have it done; it would be double (so $500 for me and $350 each for the others) if the people were coming to us instead.

    Thanks. Getting married in NJ but from CA and the prices are comparable. I found a team that will do my makeup and hair for $350 and family for $180 which is not the cheapest but not the most i’ve seen.

    I’m paying $400 for my hair & makeup (includes the trial) and it’s $90 for hair or makeup for the bridesmaids. This was about average for what I found in North Carolina.
